What do our ancestors pass on to us when they leave behind possessions and other physical evidence of their existence? Can these objects serve as a means of communication, reckoning, or generational healing? In Sunny A. Smith’s The Compass Rose, the artist creates a radiant genealogical wheel and a series of art works to navigate the complex legacies of inheritance and lineage – and invites viewers to consider how material things play a role in driving narratives of history, nationalism, family, and the self. The exhibition features new sculpture, video, and sound works alongside major pieces never before shown on the West Coast, spanning two decades of Smith’s practice.
